came to washington with the president in 2009, he sat down in a room with members of congress, both republicans and democrats, who had supported comprehensive immigration reform in the past and sid, i want to work with you. let's lock arms and get this done. and then a policy decision was made by the republican leadership that they were not going to play and they didn't want to move on this issue because they didn't want to antagonize the most strident voices. they paid a big price for that. you mentioned the overwhelming vote that the president got among latino voter. i think that they are going to have an opportunity to move on that fairly soon. >> david, i've been around the president five or six years. certainly you've been around them more than most. the thing that strikes me is how cool he is under fire. he never -- with all of this ugliness and acrimony, he's never at one time responded and played into the ugliness during this campaign. and the other thing is that he seems to be a big picture thinker. in all of the meetings, he always is kind of above the minute minutia, the
for washington. so you should keep your eye on who gets come kinects this year. there are going to be some members of congress who get them and some who don't. >> what sort of plan do you give the republican who won't agree with anything? this one, of course. the president is asking for a $1.6 trillion tax increase, $50 billion in economic stimulus, and the power to raise the debt limit without congressional approval. meanwhile, he will work the fine savings in entitlements. not to the man sitting on the naughty list. senator mcconnell said that he burst into laughter at the proposal. you know what is really funny, senator mcconnell, the president has the leverage. speaker boehner know it is. >> you think the white house is trying to squeeze you and, if so, will that work? >> well, most of you know me pretty well. what you see is what you get. and while i may be a fchl fable and someone who can work with members of both parties, which i've demonstrated over the 22 years that i've been here, i'm also rather dernled to spend our spending problems. >> i don't hear an answer to the question. h
is fo e analyst and washington correspondent "newsweek" and "the daily bea here.oke loud and clear last ni about the seen over the la years. >> well, i think if the republican party is smart, they are going to take control visiveness but they've also take control of themselves because this too me, a moral victory in many ways. you and i discussed this and you deserve abundant credit, rev for getting this don but all of the voter da, voter i.d.s,ll of those things backfired tremendously. i was in philadelphia dn four b on sunday ane congregation, the angry. they were angry becausey thought somedbody was trying t take away their right  that's how ang republicans got their n meanness so it was a great day for so many reasons but to me that was one of the best. president, also dominated demographics that i don't think the republicans the president put together a coalion, 95% of the afcan-5btúkameric f the latino . 73%vote ofm women. at lea than e and broad, something the republicans have not been able to appeal to a divers electorate. >> exactly. and you see a lot of republicans out th
republicans are secretly saying behind closed doors about elizabeth warren coming to washington. not exactly planning a welcome party. >>> and how about this picture all over the internet? we'll explain what it's all about. >>> in a conference call, he won because he gave big gifts to target ed voters but some believe he won because of the big gift he got from republicans. [ male announcer ] what are happy kids made of? bikes and balloons, and noodles on spoons. a kite, a breeze, a dunk of grilled cheese. catches and throws, and spaghettio's. a wand, some wings, soup with good things. sidewalks and doodles and wholesome noodles. puddles and pails and yes, puppy dog tails. for a lunch like this, there's a hug and a kiss. because that's what happy kids are made of. campbell's. it's amazing what soup can do. five days later, i had a massive heart attack. bayer aspirin was the first thing the emts gave me. now, i'm on a bayer aspirin regimen. [ male announcer ] be sure to talk to your doctor before you begin an aspirin regimen. [ woman ] learn from my story. wears off. [ female announcer ] stop
headed right off the cliff. joining me now is krystal ball, jonathan capehart, writer for "the washington post" and an msnbc contributor. thanks for coming on the show. >> thanks for having us. >> gop consultant mike murphy tweeted something interesting today. he said, quote, one sad possibility, mitt was our hubert h. humphrey, 1968 equivalent. next up? our mcgovern of 1972. yes, it could get even worse before it gets better. the point murphy is making is that democrats ignored their loss in the election in 1968. instead of nominating a more modern figure in '72 they went further to the left and lost probably the biggest loss of that time. i think the governor only won one state. do you think that's going to happen to the republicans? >> i certainly think it's possible and somewhat of an argument can be made that they already sort of went down that path. the argument after john mccain in 2008 was he wasn't conservative enough. a lot of people are still saying he wasn't a real conservative. he really didn't believe in the values. there's also this notion that, you know, the problem isn't
something else today that i thought was important. washington is obsessed with the deficit but the deficit wasn't the first issue that he talked about. the first issue he talked about was creating jobs and the programs that he wants to push through for job training and community colleges and the like to help raise people's income and, again, i think that's very true to the constituency that elected him that, yes, people want the long-term fiscal problem solved but right now they are still interested in making sure this economy keeps moving forward. and, again, without claiming he has political capital, that's an issue where i think he's aligned not only with his own constituency but with a lot of other people, too. >> even in victory he reaches for consensus, chris. >> that's absolutely right. and he has gone above and beyond, no matter what the republicans say, he tried so hard to get republicans on board with health care to work with him time and time again and they just rebuffed him from the beginning. we'll see if they behaved this time around. >> we'll see. thank you for your time ton
and michelle cottle, washington correspondent for newsweek and the daily beast. thank you both for coming on the show. >> thanks, rev. >> michelle, let me go to you first. let's leave the other tax reform issues for aside for the moment. how can they defend not raising rates? >> this is fundamental to the house republicans got elected and who they are. taxation is stealing under any circumstances you don't raise the tax rates. and this whole grover norquist pledge, i agree, is a complete distraction. no matter how you feel about taxes, you don't want to look like you're tied to and being given marching orders by somebody who people have never heard of. i don't think the norquist pledge really matters. the house, in particular, has a problem with any kind of tax rate hike. >> now, jared, you're the economist. what is the economic part of this? give me how the economy is impacted by the rates as opposed to what they are saying. >> well, it's a very important question because the argument underlying the republican position is that if you increase the tax rate on the top 2% of households, you
's winning this fight in washington and now even some republicans admit it. in the election, 65 million americans voted for fairness. they stood with the president who says everyone should pay their fair share, that there's just something fundamentally wrong with the millionaire paying less in tacks than his or her secretary. president obama drove that point home again today demanding that the rich pay more so the burden doesn't fall on the middle class. >> our first job is to make sure that taxes on middle class families don't go up and since we all theoretically agree on that, we should get that done. i know some of this might sound familiar to you because we talked about this a lot during the campaign. this shouldn't be a surprise to anybody. this was a major debate in the presidential can campaign and congressional campaigns all across the country. >> that's what this election was all about, americans were with him on election day. and they are still with him now. a newark ton post poll shows 60% support raising taxes on those making more than $250,000, just 37% oppose it. and now w
defeats at the ballot box, it won in maine, won in maryland, won in washington, in state after state, americans stood up for liberal values. in minnesota it came in to rejection of voter i.d. amendment. we are a more inclusive society than the republican party understood. as president obama eloquently said -- >> if you're willing to work hard, it doesn't matter who you are or where you come from or what you look like or where you love, it doesn't matter whether you're black or white or hispanic or asian or native-american or young or old or rich or poor, abled, disabled, base or straight, you can make it here in america if you're willing to try. >>> it's that vibrant coalition that elected president obama. african-americans, latinos, women, all supporting him, and pushed for a sea of change at the state level, too. republicans won the governor's race in north carolina, but lost in montana, washington, new hampshire, vermont, west virginia, delaware and missouri. and remember the overreach of the tea party in the states where many -- so many anti-women, anti-voting laws first began? w

to you for tuning in. we are live from washington, d.c. tonight's lead, what winning looks like. president obama ran on fairness, and he's about to deliver. we're already seeing this president standing strong on the key issues that won this election. fairness. i was part of a group that met with him today at the white house. he is not backing down. he knows that making this a more fair country, protecting the middle class, is the central issue of our time he will ran on fighting for a system that works for everyone. where everyone gets a fair shot at the american dream. before our group of civic leaders met with the president, he met with the democratic and republican leaders. they know he has it the upper hand. they know he holds the cards in this fight. with the threat of the fiscal cliff looming, that -- when that happens, you're going to see a winner and a winner who won the national election. the republican leaders even the republican leaders seem to get that today. their words were such a change from what we've heard from them before. to show our serious sez, we've put rev
. romney comes to washington but republicans still don't understand why he lost. the white house released this photo of governor romney and president obama in the oval office. this photo taken the day after their big lunch. through the door, you can see the private dining room where they shared a lunch of turkey chili and southwestern grilled salad and right behind the second-place finisher is the presidential race. you can see the desk that belonged to president kennedy. it's the desk he thought he'd be sitting at. the white house says the lunch was friendly. mr. romney congratulated the president on his victory and wished him well over the next four years. they also talked about america's leadership in the world and promised to stay in touch. before romney went to the white house, he met up for breakfast with his old pal paul ryan. >> mr. romney, how was your meeting with mr. romney today? was it nice to see him? >> good friend. great to be with him. >> always great to see paul ryan. >> sure. always great to see him. and chat about the irony of their getting only 47% of the vote. how fi
of msnbc.com. and michelle cottle, washington correspondent for newsweek and "the daily beast." thank you both for being here. >> thanks, rev. >> michelle, it's not a surprise but it seem like we're in a phase where behind the romney smile is a very rough campaign? >> absolutely. we've got a few days left. we have entered the phase of the campaign where time and again you can go there and get the little bit of an edge and radio ads that are shocking, billboards that are deceptive, voter suppression, voter intimidation, whatever it takes. >> voter subpoena prek, voter intimidation. but linking the president to hugo chavez and say we don't believe in god we trust? this is way beyond the boundaries. >> you have to hit people in the gut. you're not appealing to reason at this point, if you ever are, in a presidential campaign. you've got to get them in a gut level to get your allies all fired up and to, you know, hopefully get anybody still on the fence to really just kind of find some way to get through to them and get them over to your side. >> richard, what does this say? the politics of d
for "the washington post" and an msnbc contributor and ana marie cox, washington correspondent for "the guardian." thank you both for being here. >> good to be here. >> e.j., is there any method behind the madness? >> well, first of all, i want to say that i can both a nuclear physicist and a major legal baseball player. if you can make it up while you go along, why not. look, on elections it's an old game to say my guy is winning whether my guy is winning or not. they've launched a huge campaign to discredit nate silver of the "new york times" even though he's one of the best number crunchers and, in fact, used to be a baseball number cruncher. some of it is normal but some of it isn't. i think, in particular, the governor romney's claim that jeep was moving jobs to china and people at the plant as president obama said today were worried that their jobs were going to disappear and when you have corporate executives saying, wait a minute, the republican candidate is making stuff up, you really have entered some kind of strange zone at that point. >> you know, ana marie, donald trump got
4 points in washington and pennsylvania. leading by more than 2 in nevada, ohio and iowa. as a slighter margins in new hampshire and colorado, governor romney only leads in more at a point in florida and is narrowly ahead in virginia. that gives a reason for them to, let's say, be concerned. >> they need to be concerned because it is not just the enthuse yack enthuse em that's missing p. this is what barack obama does better than anyone else. man test right now in the early vote of look at nevada, north carolina, iowa. mitt romney with needs to win 54 to 60% of the remaining votes in the states in order to drop into the victory. that's a huge lift. i think when you couple the fact that democratic base is much more fired up with the fact that obama for america has been organizing for the last four years. they keep talking about pennsylvania, you can't drop into pennsylvania the weekend before an election, and expect to tip the vote just by buying ads when you have the other team with a fantastic ground operation. >> drive by campaigning won't do it. when you look at pennsy
in washington. the president knows this. he knows that he and i can work together. the election is over, now it's time to get to work. it's pretty clear that the president was re-elected. obama care is the law of the land. >> i'm reasonable. i'm responsible. obama care's the law of the land. now, there's a guy the president can work with, right? wrong. politico says that boehner's opening offer to the president is to keep the bush tax cuts, cut entitlements, and postpone cuts to the pentagon. in other words, they haven't budged at all. how is that compromise? how is that reasonable? but it gets worse. speaker boehner now says the health care law should go under the knife. boehner says, quote, we can't afford it. we can't afford to leave it in tact. that's why i've been clear that the law has to stay on the table as both parties discuss ways to solve our nation's massive debt challenge. folks, this debate is over. the american people have spoken. mitt romney ran on two big ideas in this campaign. cut the taxes and reveal our obama care. he lost. those ideas lost. but they didn't learn a thing. j
, washington correspondent for "newsweek" and the daily beast and alicia menendez, host and producer for huff post live. thank you for joining me. >> hey, rev. >> hi. >> is the president going to hold the line on these tax cuts for the rich? >> the progressive community is determined to keep him strong on this. and they are very heartened by what they've heard so far. he said he needs to take the message to the people more. he's in a much better bargaining position than he was before the election. i mean, this fiscal cliff, the republicans do not want to go over this. if they do, their priorities are going to get hit. military spending and all those bush tax cuts go away automatically. the president has them in a much better position for where he wants them. and i think he'll probably be pretty tough on this. >> alicia, will he hold steadfast? i mean, clearly progressives are in a much stronger place than they were and republicans are much weaker now. >> yeah, no, i think that he will hold the line. i don't think you would have heard those leaders coming out of that meeting talking the way th
that is to do so at your own peril. joining me now is david corn, mother jones washington bureau chief and msnbc political analyst. his new e-book is about how he uncovered romney's original 47% video. and abby huntsman, host and producer of "huff post live." today she tweeted, "romney makes it sound like obama personally handed out fruit baskets to people to win the election." you're right about that, abby. thanks for joining me tonight. >> thanks for having me. >> abby, the romney campaign put out a statement today saying, "governor romney was simply elaborating on what david axelrod had said about the obama campaign's effort to target key demographics, most specifically women." what's your reaction to that statement? >> well, reverend, i'm still waiting for my fruit basket. i'm not only a woman but i'm a young voter. i never received one. i think what we're seeing here -- >> it's coming, abby. it's coming. >> what we're seeing here, and david corn will probably say the same thing, is just a confirmation that he really does believe that 47% comment. he's very much at home when he's talking to
